New Dream House

After taking dinner to a family in the ward last Friday, I decided to take a different route home and do a little exploring.

Remember when I showed you my dream house last year? This one:

Well, I found its big brother. Or sister. I tend to think of houses as females.

*I seem to have misplaced my camera, so all pictures have been from my phone camera*

Ryan saw this picture of it and said, 'too big'. I had the opposite experience. I looked at all the fantastic houses in the neighborhood and thought, "now if only they had an arts&craftsman style home it would make this THE nicest neighborhood in Lawrence" and just as I'm thinking that I start to drive down the road and I catch a glimpse of the back patio with the white beams and stone bottoms. It was one of those experiences where my heart started pounding faster and as I drove up I could hear the angels singing a great big 'TAAAA DAAAAAAHHHH". That's how breathtaking this showstopper house is.

situated amongst friends. like this one
and this one.

My pictures really don't do any of them any justice. I'll see if I can get better ones soon!

We are big house stalkers too! We love to go on drives on the weekend and find big beautiful homes and then pick them apart... how would we do something different. Whenever I find a home I love and wouldn't change I convince myself that the people are awful! It helps me cope!

Chelsea, what on Earth would you do with all that house? You can only have so many craft rooms.

It's a dream, though, right? Plus, if I had that big of a house, SURELY I'd be able to afford a cleaning service.
